Light Rail Terminal at Michigan Central Station

What would happen if the train station and passenger service in and out were to be restored instead of being destroyed? This model illustrates one possibility if trains returned as a dominant form of transportation.

Once passengers arrived, they would need a way to get around. If light rail service was running on Michigan Avenue, travelers could simply make there way to the terminal without ever stepping outside and be on their way.

A concept for the light rail terminal. The pediments on both ends serve to compliment the architecture of the original station. The large glass area provides natural lighting, and the area below the terminal can act as a drop off/loading zone.
